Gotta be that guy

5/5

This book was wonderful, I've only read bits and pieces of it so far due to time constraints but everything I've read so far is gold.

My friend and I looked at the experimental gunslinger and the bushwhacker archetypes and we're already planning a battle between "seal team gnome" and the "tali-bold" and if you don't think that's awesome and funny....well then you sir have no sense of humor.

The fluff provided is great, getting a little more indepth into the dragon empire races would've been awesome, but I know most books work on the assumption of the Inner Sea as the main region, and of course simple size restraints.

I'll have to be honest I haven't really looked at the race builder yet, but I thought the playtest was okay, and hope that they worked out a lot of the kinks.

So all in all there is a little bit of something for everyone, even enough i'd say to warrant play a race, such as the kobold, that was always thought underpowered by most people (especially myself) just for the awesome flavor provided. Great job paizo, I'm pumped for Ultimate Equipment so hurry up!

P.S. and in reference to my review title, even though I know it's too new a race and probably wasn't popular enough to warrant going in here, to be that guy......NO KURU? AWWWWWW COME ON GUYS! KURU BARBARIAN ARCHETYPES WRITE THEMSELVES!


Homerun!

I've got a full review posted here: http://seekersofsecrets.com/?p=520

As others already noted this book channels what is great about the Advanced Player's Guide and is full of interesting options and choices for your Pathfinder game! The $9.99 pdf is a no-brainer purchase.


Decent, but not impressive.

3/5

I found this book to be a mixed bag and just barely worth the price of the PDF.

The first 3 chapters present every race that can be a PC and gives you a whole slew (yes, slew) of options for customizing each race. I found the majority of the options to be both useful and flavorful. All of these races are previously available, but it is convenient to have all the races in one book when you are creating your character. Of course, if you have access to modern technology in the form of a laptop full of PDFs or even a 3G smartphone, then the luxury of one book of races becomes slightly less impressive.

The fourth chapter is where things go downhill. The more I use their race creation system, the more I just plain dislike it for making balanced PCs. I disliked it during the play test and I dislike it more now. I build a lot of custom PC races for my campaigns, so I'm feeling more than a little let down by this part of the book. Another race building system was devised on the Paizo forums that blows this one out of the water, in my opinion. On the other hand, if I need to slap together a "savage" NPC or monstrous BBEG, I will probably use this system. So it's got that going for it, I guess.

The artwork is excellent, by the way. Every race gets a nice picture and the cool new monsters that Paizo tries to pass off as example races are especially cool.


Back to APG quality level!

5/5

OK, the inevitable racial splat book is here. Let's see what we get...

You know what I loved about APG? It was a book for everyone. It's universal appeal, combined with a reasonable amount of optional material, made it such a big hit.

Narrowing the focus and increasing the amount of "no thanks, will never use it" pages is what irritated me about Ultimate Magic and Ultimate Combat. The former was a particularily bad offender, with zero stuff for non-caster classes and a horribly big Words of Power chapter. So the question here is, is Paizo back on track?

Yes, I say. This book covers the core races extensively, deals with Featured Races (drow, kobolds, tengus, tieflings, aasimars...) and throws a bone to fans of Uncommon Races (duergar, grippli, Dragon Empires races...)

In every instance we get: alternate racial traits (first introduced in APG), racial subtypes (sets of racial traits that allow you to create, say, a Mountain Dwarf or an Arctic Elf), racial favored class options, racial archetypes for existing classes, equipment, feats, magic items and spells.

There's a mountain of material here, and that's a mountain anybody can climb. Whichever race you like, there will be something for you there. Dwarven hammer specialists? Yes. Half-orc paladins who are all about redeeming themselves and their race? Aye. Skaven Poison Globadier...errr, sorry, Ratfolk Plague Alchemists? Neek-neek!

Then comes the race creation chapter, which is reasonably sized and very useful for any GM who wants to create his/her new races or do what everyone is going to do: reverse-engineer warforged and thri-kreen. C'mon, I know you want to.

Great book, glad to see the APG mojo back.


Awesome Book!

5/5

I've had the opportunity to look at this book for several days and I have to say that it is simply amazing. Not since the APG has a book come out that has something for everyone. I'll break it down by chapter.

Chapter 1: Core Races: This part of the book describes the 7 core race and include a concept which IMO can create great character back story and RP opportunities. That’s the Racial Archetypes - Think Elven Bladesinger from the realms and you'll know what I mean. Finally something that most people in the world can't get but your race. In addition the core races have racial subtypes that don’t change the race stats, but do give flavor by changing the racial traits. Dread Gnome and Gear Gnome come into mind. Finally there are spells & magic items that are primarily used by each race, not exclusively but primarily.

Chapter 2: Focuses on the secondary less fecund races, many of which have been given out as Boons for the Pathfinder Society Games or have been played by fans of RPG games for decades. Fans and Foes of the Drow will be pleased as you can play a drow and work yourselves to becoming 'noble' by spending quite a lot of feats. IMO a balanced approach from what could have been a cheese-fest. There are equipment items which are found primarily (exclusively) in areas where the races are predominant. Some of which are really sweet RP flavor: I'm looking at you Fire Ink (Ifrit Equipment)!

Chapter 3: this continues with the more Uncommon races such as the Sulis, Samsaran, etc. This chapter is written in a similar format to the first two chapters with racial traits/Equipment/special rules all to flavor your character and create more RP opportunities for players. Some of my favorites races included in this were the Sulis and the Elemental Flux vial they can only use which can be both versatile as an player tool but can also be used by the GM to create some fun havoc (you'll see why).

Chapter 4: Was the Race builder where you are given the mechanic behind race creation. Many of the core races and some of the more common monsters were broken down to explain the point creation system. I didn’t tool around too much with this part as I'd rather just pay someone else to create the races for me to play with. But all in all its a simple race creator that doesn’t bog the system down with complicated calculations.

Appendix; This is one of my favorites parts. really you say. well it has something many gamers have been clamoring for years: The Starting ages, maximum ages charts and Height and Weights of the 35+ races featured in this book. How long can a Dhampir or Sylph live for? when do they reace middle age? What is their starting adventuring ages...its in the book!

A great book overall and very well done. This book has something for every player and GM. The Alternate abilities, Racial Traits, and options included in this are sure to make even the most ardent purist eyes light up. So go grab a copy and check it out.

There are some simple guidelines regarding this in the Race building rules (Here.

You change the way you calculate APL when you have advanced races.

Also, if you scroll up from there, they suggest in the very first couple paragraphs that if you add in new more powerful races, you "power up" existing race to put all characters on a level playing field. You could also simple allow players a bonus feat or a higher point buy to even things out.

Does anyone know if the Aasimar Purifier's bonus spells were meant to replace the mystery's spells or meant to replace the cure X wounds spells that the oracle no longer automatically gains? d20pfsrd.com says they should replace the mystery's spells, and they come at the proper levels, but if so that archetype seems very underwhelming.

Well, the description in both the ARG AND the PRD does not state that it replaces the mystery spells, something that is explicitly stated for all other Oracle archetypes in the ARG.

I just cannot imagine that this slipped by Paizo's dutiful watchers.

Thus, RAW (and I believe RAI), these bonus spells are in addition to the mystery's spells (likely to replace the missing Cure/Inflict).

The Location Memories revelation for a reincarnated oracle says it gives low-light vision. Samsarans already get it. Is this a mistake?


Normally, weapon enhancement bonuses, etc. don't apply to bull rush attempts. However, I'm wondering if the Foehammer's class features might be an exception to that rule, at least in some circumstances.

For example, I don't see how to read the Piledriver description without concluding that the hammer was an integral part of that bull rush or trip attempt, but the class feature doesn't explicitly say so. In this case, those combat maneuvers seem to be more along the lines of knockdown/awesome blow type attacks rather than traditional bull rush or trip attempts.

Similarly, the Sledgehammer feature seems to imply that the Foehammer's weapon is involved in some way with their combat maneuver attempts, at least for bull rush, overrun, sunder and trip, though again it doesn't actually say so.

Am I totally off base here?

I thought it was meant to replace cure or inflict spells.

I'm trying to build a Lupin race from the 2nd Edition Savage Coast/Red Steel setting (I thought this might be a cool Mythic Adventure campaign). Seems like they didn't have special qualities so I looked through the ARG and tried to pick dog-like qualities. Thought an interesting one would be "Cornered Fury" which costs 4 RP; once your HP is equal to or less than half and no conscious ally is within 30', you get +2 to melee attacks and AC. This sound like something that might only come up (hopefully) every few sessions, if any.

I was thinking about tweaking it to be like the Lupin character can designate an ally per day (or per combat) to protect, and if this ally goes down, the trait kicks in. Not sure if that would be too "powerful" though, since the original scenario might not occur as frequently. Wanted to get some input. Maybe this should cost more? Thanks!


Are there any additional 3rd party support with new race building options available?

Also, what section of the forums so would be the correct place to post new race designs as solicit feedback?

Does the Fast Learner feat allow a character to select the same benefit twice at an individual level?


I gave this product a glowing review, which is why it pains me to even ask this question.

But I'm wondering, will the upcoming Inner Sea Races hardcover make this book obsolete as Inner Sea Gods did the AP deity articles?

Personally, I doubt it. From what's been said, Inner Sea Races is more likely to obsolete books such as Dwarves of Golarion, Elves of Golarion, Orcs of Golarions, Gnomes of Golarion, and so on and so forth. I believe they've also said that it will primarily focus on the major races of the Inner Seas over the less commmon, more 'exotic' races...and will definitely be focusing on the Inner Sea over other areas, such as Tian Xia, Vudra, and other such. Plus, of course, it's very much going to be tackling it from the angle of Golarion, as opposed to a setting-neutral book like this. I think for people who primarily play in Golarion, it may well tend to be more useful than this book, simply because this one, due to being relatively divorced from Golarion's setting, can't really go into as much detail into the various ethnicities, histories, cultures, and other such of said races, but this book will still likely be helpful from a more crunch-oriented perspective. Of course, I could be wrong, but I'm under the impression that Inner Sea Races will be quite different from the Advanced Class Guide...and considering the size of the Advanced Class Guide, a book big enough to include almost everything in it like Inner Sea Gods did with the deity articles, as well as significantly expand upon it, would be quite the monumental feat!

Good points. I already have the PDF, now I'm buying the hardcover. I guess I didn't need much convincing, did I?


For the alternate Duergar racial trait "Dwarf traits", giving up Duergar Immunities lets you choose dwarf racial traits that replace the hardy dwarf racial trait. That doesn't include the hardy trait itself, does it?

I'm preparing to play a new campaign and I have built a Fletchling Shadow Caller Summoner and I plan to multi class him into an Illusion(Shadow) School Wizard but I had a question relating to summon monster. When my character would use summon monster using a Wizard Spell does he have the Shadow Template on them restricting the monsters I would summon or not?


I have a question about the Shigenjo archetype for tengu oracles. The Class Skills paragraph states that the mystery's additional class skills are replaced with Knowledge (nature), Knowledge (religion), Knowledge (planes), and Survival. However, Knowledge (religion) and Knowledge (planes) are already class skills for ALL oracles. What two additional class skills should they receive? (I would suggest that one of them be Knowledge [arcana].)


The defensive racial trait Exalted Resistance on p. 223 of the Advanced Race Guide grants spell resistance 6 + character level against evil spells and costs 3 RP. However, on the same page, the Lesser Spell Resistance trait grants SR 6 + character level in general and costs only 2 RP. There's also Greater Spell Resistance for 3 RP which is 11 + character level. Why would anyone want to take Exalted Resistance?

If you want your (presumably non-evil) allies to heal or buff you in combat, Exalted Resistance would be much less of a hassle since you don't have to voluntarily lower it against any evil spellcasters you may be facing.

Of course, any spell resistance less than 11 + level is of little use given that most spells from level appropriate foes would penetrate it easily.

When I heard about this errata, I was eager to show it to my fellow players (as I am playing a 19-year-old aasimar raised by humans, while two of the other players are playing young adult 60+ year old aasimars and tieflings.

When I actually saw the errata, though, I realized that if anything the ages of aasimars, dhampirs, and tieflings are actually more screwed up than ever. As somebody pointed out in another thread, it is now actually possible to play a dhampir who dies of old age before he is ready to begin play.

Am I wrong in believing that the Dual Talent human was missed for correcting what you replace the extra +2 with? A human is worth 9 RP. Skilled is 4 RP and the bonus feat is 4 RP. The +2 to any one stat is worth 0 RP. Can someone explain to be how having any two stats gain a +2 racial bonus is worth 8 points? I mean, the Advanced stats are only worth 4 each. I would think this would be worth 3 RP, tops. If you want to replace the Skilled or bonus feat, that's fine, but both? Really?

Is there any designer who can chime in and tell us what the age categories are actually supposed to be? Right now, the Aasimar and Tiefling don't make sense, and the Dhampir contradicts the existing fluff (Elven lifespans are mentioned in both ARG and Bestiary 2)

Actually, the dual talent human switches from using the Human Heritage (0 RP) option to the Flexible (2 RP) option. So you're effectively "losing" 6 RP.

Then again, if you take the dual talent option and put the extra +2 in Intelligence, the skill ranks balance out. You're essentially trading one bonus feat for +1 to all intelligence-based checks, int-based spell save DCs and so on. That's a terrific trade for a slightly MAD INT-based caster, like a magus or a investigator.

The fact that the extra +2 INT from Flexible is priced at 2 RP but +1 skill rank per level is priced at 4 RP (same as Advanced Int for an additional +2) is probably a bigger issue.

I said 3 RP because Flexible is supposed to be +2 to two stationary stats (ie. +2 Wis, +2 Cha for the aasimar). This is +2 to any two stats period. So it's actually even more flexible. I could see someone arguing 4 RP, even. But what's the difference between any +2 to Int being worth more? A human wizard with +2 Int. That no longer makes it 0 RP. An elf wizard with +2 Dex, -2 Con, +2 Int. No longer 0? A tiefling wizard or magus with +2 Dex, +2 Int, -2 Cha. Is that now more than 0 RP? You can make a mountain out of a mole hill easily. The thing is it's not assumed that every character ever is going to be an Int-based caster. Otherwise, you'd have to have to make an additional note in brackets saying "0 RP, unless playing an Int-based caster, then it's 4 RP." This would make every Int-based caster 13-17 RP.


The errata for this book needs to burn in a fire. Wtf were you thinking? Seriously..

Silver Crusade

So for those who already have the 500 gp mask do we sell it back and buy the 8000 gp mask?
What about the Aasimar 1/2 being changed to 1/6 affects and those Aasimar who used phylactery of positive channeling to get protective channeling at an early stay lose that? Do they get to change the feat they used for free since it's an errata or do they have to pay for rebuild?
What about those who created the Aasimar combo, so they can have a Mystic Theurge early? I didn't see a change for that, so was there an errata for it some where else?

Grand Lodge

Okay, I have to ask. Just how many RP is poison immunity? The duergar resistances is 4 RP. Among that, you have immunity to three things, which includes poison and phantasms, as well as a bonus to saves against spells and SLA. However, the poor dwarf is only 3 RP. Slightly unbalanced, don't you think? Regardless, this makes it look like poison immunity is a mere 1 RP. One for each immunity, and one for the resistances.


Can someone please explain to me why the naga aspirant's augmented form costs venom immunity, a thousand faces, and timeless body, but the animal shaman archetypes pay for three bonus feats, which are gained at the exact same levels as the augments to the naga form, with only venom immunity?

*looks over Naga Aspirant and Serpent Shaman*

Because "Combat Expertise, Improved Feint, Skill Focus (Bluff), Stealthy, or Strike Back" aren't really that good compared to the augments? Plus you still have to meet the prerequisites.
